The Reverend Mary-Ellen Dolan: new priest in Málaga

The Reverend Mary-Ellen Dolan has arrived in Spain to take up the post of priest-in-charge of Málaga. She comes from being Interim Rector of the Church of the Good Shepherd and St John the Evangelist, Milford, PA, USA. Her new responsibilities took effect from, Monday 1 September.

Mary-Ellen, an Irish citizen and a priest for 19 years, comes to this diocese with a rich and varied experience. She has served the (US) Episcopal Church's parishes in Wiesbaden, Germany and Waterloo, Belgium. She continues to serve as Secretary of the Francophone Network of the Anglican Communion, having worked for many years in Francophone Africa. Besides her formal training for priestly ministry she is also trained in spiritual direction. And in addition Mary-Ellen also has professional qualifications in psychiatric nursing, which might be a useful skill for anyone in ministry!

A service of licensing will take place on  Friday 19 September 2014 at 12 noon in St George's Church, led by the Acting Archdeacon, the Revd Canon Geoffrey Johnston.

We welcome Mary-Ellen to this diocese.

The parish of Málaga includes the historic Church of St George in Málaga city and daughter congregations, particularly Vélez Málaga.
